Half marathon
The Two Town Half Marathon is set to make its debut on Oct. 11. The point-to-point race takes place on a newly certified flat course in both Surf City and Topsail Beach.
The event begins at the new Topsail Beach Town Center and will be completed at Soundside Park in Surf City where a post-race celebration party will take place.
Registration is available through townofsurfcity.com and will remain open until Sept. 30. Proceeds will benefit the Pretty in Pink Foundation, prettyinpinkfoundation.org. The Pretty In Pink Foundation provides financial assistance and support to underinsured and uninsured North Carolinians with breast cancer.
Both Surf City and Topsail Beach are cooperating on this fall racing venture with Brunswick Timing.  The cost is $50, and all participants will receive a collector’s T-shirt, finisher medals and other goodies.  
Volunteers for the event will receive a special shirt and pre-race training. For more information or to volunteer, call Surf City Community Center at 910-328-4887 or go to the race website link attownofsurfcity.com.
